Soap&Glory-PANROSA-Elf facial products -PRODUCT REVIEW

Hello everyone! 👋🏼

Thank you all once again for stopping by and checking out my newest post! It is truly appreciated from the bottom of my heart.

After a long week and weekend I needed some time to pamper my face and feel some sort of relaxation before starting another work week. So I have decided to take three products and use them for a lovely relaxing facial for the evening. My face thanks me and yours will too.

Before we begin the process we want to make sure the face and clean and dry. What I normally do is take a shower so this way my face and my body is clean for the relaxation process.

Now that my face is all clean i started the process with Soap & Glory Purifying De-Clog Mask ($5.49 – includes 2 capsules) I have used one of the capsules previously and I really like the product.

Benefits to using this product:

Beautiful ass skin! Declog those pores with this grime – gripping peel – off mask. Power packed with 10 amazing ingredients including bentonite & kaolin fine clay powders to help absorb excess oil.

Plus • Oil – absorbing Kaolin & clay powders. •Vitamin C & E. • oolong tea. • Lentil seed. • Sage. • Camomile & Ginger Extracts • White willow bark.

This peel off mask is the BEST stuff I have used so far hands down.

Not only are the ingredients awesome but this does include two capsules and a scoop is included so you don’t have to use your hands which can be a mess.

Apply a thin even layer onto clean, dry skin, avoid the eyes area, hairline, eyebrows and lips. Focus on the problem areas prone to open pores, especially the T-zone , nose and chin.

Leave the product on for about 20-25 minutes until it is completely dry, so this way you can peel off in one sheet.

Just a heads up.. This mask is tough on skin, so expect to pull a bit as you reveal fresh-looking skin. Gently pull upwards from chin to forehead. Rinse off any excess with warm water.

Step 1: Declog pores

Now that the first step is finished, let’s go ahead and move onto step: 2.

So I know most would only do one mask in a night or vis versa but I decided that after declogging my pores that my face needed to be hydrated.

The next product I will be using is the PANROSA Chondrus Crispus Hydrating Face Mask ($1.99) now I have never tried this product before, but I was excited to try this out.

Benefits to using this product:

This mask helps rehydrate dry skin the Chondrus Crispus is packed with beneficial vitamins and minerals that help skin look beautiful and healthy.

The hydration in this product is so wonderful and cool on the face. It is a simple paper like mask so be careful taking it out of the package and unfolding it.

Of course with a clean dry face apply the mask to the skin. You will want to leave it on for about 15-20 minutes. Once you are finished massage any remaining product into the skin.

Step: 2 Hydrate

And that is that with step: 2

I really love how it made my face feel softer and very much hydrated which is a major plus in my books.

Last but not least is Step: 3 which I am thrilled because it’s one of my favorite brands.. e.l.f Cosmetics. I have never tried this particular product so let’s see how well it works.

So for the last step to pampering my face would be the E.l.f Daily Hydration Moisturizer ($8.00) which I picked up from Target.

The benefits to using this product:

•Glowing healthy looking skin. •Lightweight •Fresh scented moisturizer •Infused with Purified water •jojoba •aloe •Vitamin E .

It’s also rich in antioxidants Shea butter, grape and orange.

All I do is take a small amount of moisturizer in my hands and gently apply to my face and neck until absorbed into my skin. You can use this daily as well.

Step: 3 Hydrate and Moisturize

I really like the fact it’s a daily moisturizer and I can use it in the mornings when I’m getting ready in the mornings. I also really like that after this process how glowy and hydrated my skin looks!

Glowy hydrated skin

Really like all three products to be honest with all of you, that I will be using these products again and maybe in a different mask routine or whatever the case maybe.

Highly recommend trying these products out even if it’s just separately. You will certainly be happy with the results!

I am completely happy with my results and the way my skin feels. Always take the time to pamper yourself and try new products out, only way to know what you like or dislike.

Thank you all so much for stopping by and reading my newest product review.

Update time

Hello everyone 👋🏼

Thank you so much for dropping by and reading my newest blog post.

As some may or may not know, I recently went back to work after a month off due to memory issues. Needless to say I feel like I just started this job even tho it was mentioned that I have been with my company for almost two years.

I am now on week two and so far I am feeling very overwhelmed with everything, I may have to consider going down to thirty one hrs a week to help ease me into my work. So we will see what happens tomorrow when I speak to HR.

On another note I have been receiving a lot of Happy Mail this last week. I am thrilled and happy with some of the items I have received, minus a few minor issues but overall I am content. I’ve been using the wish app to order random different items to try out.

I have come across some neato items as well as uh.. what is that and what is it for lol. My most recent item that I have gotten a lot of questions about on my Instagram page is the makeup washer.

Yes you read that right.. a washer to clean your makeup brushes. I have yet to use it due to just being busy plus I need AA batteries. But WOW! I have seen this on many makeup tutorials and videos that I have in and wanted it for myself.

After researching how to use it, since the instructions are in Chinese, it seems fairly easy to use! Pour in a cup of water with some soap, put in a sponge or a brush and press the button and BAM it starts cleaning the items.

To get all the yucky water out, take the hose on the side and place it in a little bowl and it literally drains it out.

Something I plan to do this weekend!

Again thank you all for stopping by and reading my newest post, it truly means a lot to me!

If you have a product you would like me to review or test out please send me a message either here, my email, Instagram as well as twitter and will get back to you.

Have a wonderful week!

e.l.f lip plumping gloss – Product Review

Hello everyone 👋🏼

Thank you all so much for visiting my blog! It really means the world to me. 🙏🏼 Hope you beautiful souls are having a wonderful start to your weekend. ✨

Today I decided to do a product review on the e.l.f lip plumping gloss 💋 now you may remember in my last blog post I did a full face look using e.l.f cosmetics and even tho I did review the products I did not do a full review on each product individually, so here we are.

Now I am thrilled to give you the deets on this product. Just because 1. It’s e.l.f cosmetics and 2. It’s a lip plumping gloss!

When I first went and picked up the e.l.f lip plumping gloss -Sparkling Rose- at Target ($6.00), was super excited to try this out just because I have always been a fan of lip plumpers. And like everyone else I also had my doubts as well, but If it does not involve surgery I am completely all for it lol.

I opened the product (I always do a smell test) It has a subtle light floral smell, kinda like a delicate but elegant smell. Taking it out of the tube was the right amount of gloss on the applicator, the gloss is a light pink color. You can apply this alone or add a balm before applying, I used both actually.

After applying the e.l.f lip plumping gloss, which went on super smoothly and again just the right amount of gloss on the applicator. I was impressed by the way the plumping gloss was working its magic!

My lips started tingling and I just knew that this product would do wonders, the tingling lasted for about 2-4 minutes but it was certainly enough to make my lips pouty, not like over dramatic lip filler look but it did give my lips the boost it needed.

Here are the benefits to using e.l.f lip plumping gloss:

-This Lip Plumping Gloss does help plump the lips with nourishing hydration.

-The invigorating high-shine formula also provides a soothing sensation while it volumizes.

-Enriched with Vitamin E and Coconut Oil to nourish and hydrate the lips for a soft, supple feel.

-The natural shades of shimmering, color add a pop to your look that perfect for work days and a night out.

Easy to take with you on the go, and different shimmering colors to choose from like Champagne glam, Sparking rose, Pink cosmo, mocha twist, and Peach Bellini.

Back in 2004 I had a dirt bike accident that resulted in facial reconstruction, meaning I have 9 plates in my face. Due to the surgery they had to go under my top lip to place a in my face and when the stitches healed up , my top lip went a bit smaller 😣.

I have tried multiple different products and non of them have held up like this product has. Which is AMAZING! And truly appreciate e.l.f cosmetics for coming out with this product, it is truly amazing!

If you have yet to try this product, I highly recommend that you go out right now and pick yourself up some e.l.f lip plumping gloss before you go out tonight! It’s Friday night and the feelings right, oh what a night!

I had a lot of fun testing this product out, and look forward to testing out more products as the days go by.

Thank you all for stopping by and reading! Have a wonderful weekend.

Fall makeup look – e.l.f cosmetics – Product Review

Good day to all of you beautiful people out there. 👋🏼

I am super thrilled that fall is coming .. it’s pretty much next week lol but since I live in Arizona it’s always hot then we get a good month or two of “cooler” weather then back to being hot asf.

With that said I felt inspired to come up with something that was a bit more like a subtle fall look, nothing too vibrant something a bit on the lighter side.

I Wanted a look that turns heads.. and I got just that my boyfriend is living proof, all he kept doing all night was staring at me lol.. Felt a bit awkward 😅

But it made me feel really proud of what I have accomplished compared to years prior to doing my makeup. It was that booster I needed to keep pushing and practicing, and hopefully inspire others.

In this post I will be reviewing multiple different products that are mostly e.l.f cosmetics, but I do have a few other different brands Which i will be sharing in this post as well that I used for a full face look which I call the subtle fall look.

First I start off with a blank canvas.

Hi 👋🏼 I’m the blank canvas.

I normally start with my eyebrows and eyes then finish my face last. So I started with the e.l.f lock on liner and brow cream in Espresso. Purchased it at Target for only ($3.00)

Now this product glides on smoothly to sculpt, shade, and define brows, but I highly suggest to apply with a lighter hand if you are going for more on the light side with your brows.

But you can also use this as a eyeshadow and eyeliner for gorgeous, long lasting color. Now I have not tried it as a eyeshadow but I have used it as a eyeliner at one point.

The looks.
The inside.

To apply I also used the e.l.f precision dual-sided eyebrow brush which is FREAKIN AWESOME SAUCE! This dual brush is designed for precision application. I got this bad boy at Target for ($5.40)

A dual sided eyeshadow brush with a brush to shape brows into place, and a angled brush to sculpt and fill in the brow.

The custom designed triangular handle provides ultimate control, its also luxuriously soft, cruelty-free the white Fiber hairs help show exact placement of makeup on the brush for optimal amount of product for precise applications.

After I finished doing my eyebrows I just fell in love with these two products they work so well and I have waited a long time to find the right product to help get the eyebrows I want.

So now we move on to putting on e.l.f HD lifting concealer ($4.00) at Target, underneath my brows and on top of the brow area where I will use a foundation sponge and e.l.f concealer brush ($2.00) at Target, before I do I suggest to use setting power on the brows to help absorb any oils on the brows this way your brows stay put all day (which I didn’t do.) then I just blend it out with the sponge and use the brush to get the arches and underneath the brow.

The high definition, skin firming concealer hides imperfections to help regenerate the skin for added radiance. It also helps minimizes fine lines as well as helps even out skin tone. This formula is infused with Vitamin C, Green Tea and Mulberry to help improve skin texture.

Now that I got my eyebrows taken care of and blending the concealer in making my eyebrows looking flawless and what my boyfriend would tell me later is that they look are on “fleek” I nearly died laughing. I am now ready to get my face prepped.

My eyes can be a little tricky when applying eyeshadow just because I had my face reconstructed I notice certain things that make it difficult to even out.

I applied the e.l.f shadow lock primer onto my lids and brow area so my eyeshadow is lock into place, I have used this item for many years and still swear by it.

Also placed the e.l.f line and define tape ($3.00) and angled them in the right place by my eye so this way my eye shadow is in the right place and now everywhere else. I also cut the strips in half to help conserve the strips, they last so much longer that way.

For my eyeshadow I used the e.l.f opposites attract eyeshadow palette ($14.00) which is my favorite right now just because the colors in the palette are vibrant and others that sparkle ✨ and I feel you can do a lot with the colors! This is only the beginning people. Lol

For the look I used clever, chill , spicy, low key and genuine.

After applying on all the eyeshadow I then went in and used the NYX professional makeup that’s the point eyeliner hella fine ($7.69) to get more of a cat eye going, the product glides on smoothly with a matte finish.

Once I am finished with that I remove the strips and get ready for the Lashes.

So I picked up The creme shop ‘Dahlia’ 3D Lashes which are 3X Volume, 3X Length, and 3X Dimensions at T-j-maxx for $4.99. I have never used these brand of lashes but was thrilled to get them.

Applied with Kiss strip lash adhesive, another one of my favorite brands. Really like the way these lashes look and feel, barley clipped them since they fit just perfectly on my lids.

What I used to moisturized my face was the Aveeno positively radiant daily face moisturizer which I have used multiple times and like how radiant my skin looks but I also used the e.l.f antioxidant booster drops $10.00 at Target, which OMG I am digging the booster drops a lot!

All I did was dropped a few drops on my face took some moisturizer and applied it in a circular motion and let it absorb in my skin for a moment before applying my foundation.

Some of the benefits to the e.l.f antioxidant booster drops :

Highlights

  • Booster Drops
  • Supercharges beauty products with antioxidants for added protection
  • Contains Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Snow Mushroom Extract
  • Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Snow Mushroom Extract
  • Add a few drops to any foundation, liquid or cream

It is a lightweight booster super-charges your beauty products with antioxidants for added protection. Can be used alone or added into any foundation liquid or creme.

A must have for your daily regimen!

Really loving the booster drops

Once my face has absorbed the drops and moisturizer I then apply my foundation, what I use is the Maybelline Fit me! In 222 True beige with my sponge.

After blending all the foundation in I then applied the High definition powder ($6.00) under my eye area and around my forehead, chin and bit on the nose, and let it sit for a moment and then blend it all out.

This product helps my makeup stays in place and makes my face look so flawless.

I then blended in some Maybelline Fit me Powder 222 True beige, added some e.l.f baked highlighter & bronzer to my cheekbones nose, chin, upper lip and forehead and again blended it all out.

Last but not least ..

Added on some e.l.f lip plumping gloss -Sparkling Rose ($6.00) for the finished look.

And I have to say I am super impressed by the plumping in the gloss it actually lasts for a little while and gives my lips a fuller plumping look! The smell is light and delightful, I got ‘Sparkling Rose’ and I will certainly be buying more of this lip gloss!

And lastly here is the finished look after using all of the products that was mentioned in this post.

Full face beauty

Here is a Before and After photo.

CALA Tangle Free Hair Brush – Review

Happy day to all of you beautiful souls out there. ✌🏼

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my newest product review. 🙏🏼 Very much appreciated.

And now onto the product review.

Today I have another pick of the day which is pretty cool specially for those of you who have tangly hair like I do, this product might just might be for you.

The llama Cala Tangle Free Hair Brush which I purchased from Tjmaxx for $2.99, but you can also purchase that one for $6.95 (website) or browse around on the Cala products website Here .

I am really enjoying the llamas on the Brush, which was my first instinct that I HAD to purchase it!

Lol 😝 another fun fact is I REALLY like llamas and think they are badass. I also have a stuffed animal that’s a llama named Larry. Don’t judge me. 🦙

Having tangly hair is a nightmare in my eyes.. I enjoy washing my hair and conditioning it.. but once I am out of the shower and let it air dry, my hair becomes a jungle.. specially trying to brush it when it’s damp or dry.. yeah forget it. 👎🏼

But on the bright side thank goodness for all the different products out there to explore and review!

What’s the deal with this Brush?

– Well first and foremost it Easily detangle’s wet & dry hair.

-Vibrant and exciting tangle free brushes.

-Ergonomic handles for silky, smooth hair.

My first impression’s on this Brush was like badass then it I was like ok let’s give it a go and see if it lives up to the whole “Tangle Free” game.

I really like how light weight the brush is and makes it super easy to store away or travel with it.

Anyways I was pretty surprised by the result with my hair being damped. Brushed through my hair without any issues! And love how my hair feels and looks silky smooth. Also works well on dry hair as well.

Overall this is a really cool product just by the looks and the way it works, plus you can pick other images for your brush on the website.

I highly suggest this product again for anyone who suffers from tangly hair even perfect for those with a sensitive scalp.

All natural

Hope you enjoyed reading my review on the Cala Tangle Free Hair Brush.

If you all could please like , share , and maybe send some feedback is kindly appreciated.

Chapstick total hydration 3 in 1 lip care – Review

Good day to all of you beautiful people!

Thank you again for checking out my newest post.

😊 It truly does mean a lot to me. Hope you all are having a wonderful day so far!

Now let’s begin..

Today’s pick of of the day is the Chapstick total hydration 3 in 1 Lip care – Coconut Hydration which was picked up at Target for $2.99.

Buy Here

I should also mention if I haven’t already but Target is my go to for a lot of my shopping as far as beauty supplies to video games, tho not much grocery shopping there. 🤷🏼‍♀️

The looks.

What benefits does this product have?

Moisturizes: It contains a botanical moisturizing complex and it helps keep lips moisturized for up to 8 hours.

Renews: It contains botanical oils known to be rich in omegas 3/6/9 and it helps renew the lips’ natural barrier.

Transforms: Helps improve the damaged appearance of skin, helping your lips maintain a healthier appearance.

Advanced 3 in 1 Formula

The whole goal to this product is:

“Chapstick total hydration 3 in 1 is a unique triple action formula that moisturizes, Renews and Transforms your lips, all in one lip balm to provide smoother, healthier looking lips”.

Many do not know but I am in LOVE with chapsticks products as well, just because I enjoy the way they keep my lips moisturized, and maintains my lips to look healthier.

When I was in my foggy state of mind in the hospital my lips got very chapped and started to hurt, from what I can remember I never let them get that bad.

Not the best looking lips.

Thank goodness for the Chapstick total hydration 3 in 1!

I can totally feel this product working on my lips and healing them to be healthier, I know it sounds crazy but after the 24 hours I can see the improvements it has made.

Better looking kisser 💋

keep in mind as well, I do apply my chapstick on my lips periodically throughout the day just because my lips have to feel moisturized. 😊

Even tho this product does moisturize lips for up to 8 hours. It does live up to that. I am just a Chapstick fanatic.. don’t mind me. Lol.

I love the light coconut smell that it has, and it is not a over baring smell like some chapsticks tend to have, which is very delightful.

It also has a super ez- twist tube to easily twist the chapstick up, and apply whenever you are ready.

Chapstick brand has never failed me so I am super positive this product would work for you as well. Super easy to take with you anywhere, even bra approved.

You can wear this before alone, or you can apply before lipstick so this way the product of choice does not dry out your lips (My little secret to keeping moisturize lips while wearing lipstick) or even add a little gloss on top of this product for more of a glossy moisturized look.

Overall I would highly suggest and recommend to anyone to try this product out for themselves so this way you all can reap the benefits of this lovely little chapstick.

Thank you all for stopping by and having a read at my newest product review – 3in 1 Lip care product.

Have a wonderful rest of your day! 💋

e.l.f Lip Exfoliator Review

Hello everyone 👋🏼

Welcome back to Victoria’s Beauty Diary.

Today I am so excited to share one of my favorite brands e.l.f cosmetics , I have used them for many years and truly adore/swear by their products. So if you never used e.l.f or curious about using them I HIGHLY suggest it!

With that said…

Today’s pick of the day is the e.l.f Lip Exfoliator -Sweet Cherry- I purchased this product from Target which was only $4.00 not a bad deal for a Lip Exfoliator.

What are the benefits of using this product?

-This product gently exfoliates the lips to help remove dry, chapped skin.

-Infused with: Vitamin E, Shea Butter, Avocado, Grape, and Jojoba Oil to help nourish and protect lips.

-Treats and smooths lips for a conditioned and revitalized feel.

How do I use this product?

-Apply to clean damp lips.

-Massage in a circular motion to exfoliate.

-Use a moistened cotton pad with water.

-Gently wipe away scrub.

-Follow with a Lip balm or gloss to condition.

I have originally used the “Brown Sugar” Lip Exfoliator by e.l.f and really love the way it moistened and conditioned my lips 💋

But it does not surprise me at all that e.l.f has yet another good product in the books!Really digging this Lip Exfoliator very much.

This -Sweet Cherry- is very delightful in smell, and the looks of it is just to die for. Love brand new cosmetics and how perfect they look before using them lol

It applies on very smoothly and of course applied on in a circular motion as advised and wiped with a cotton ball.

The cool part to all of this is on the box it states: follow with a lip balm or gloss to condition, well you can use anything you like as I used (Chapstick total hydration 3 in 1) or pop the bottom off the Lip Exfoliator and BOOM you have some balm to condition your lips with.

Really love the way my lips look more “Alive” than prior to my lips looking so dull and blah, It was time to bring my lips back to life.

⬇️Below is before applying the Lip Exfoliator.⬇️

Would you buy this product again?

Of course I will! Specially this product cause due to the last few weeks of going through some rough memory loss I was not really taking good care of myself and sometimes you have to remind yourself self -care is important especially on the road to recovery.

Here is the results from using e.l.f Lip Exfoliator -Sweet Cherry-

I ended up using Chapstick total hydration 3 in 1 care which I will be posting a review on that product as well. Stay tuned for that.

Thank you again for stopping by! 👋🏼 P.s sorry my video is sideways 😩
